I have never experienced a failure with a Century build, however after shooting AKs manufactured from different makers, I do notice a difference regarding accuracy and comfort to the point that I have sworn that my next AK variant will be from a different builder.
I will definitely wait until more feedback from users is provided and see what the MSRP is before considering this rifle. It does have some appealing factors.
1. The .223 is readily available and manufactured in the U.S.
2. The typical AK platform is a solid, reliable design and can be learned quickly.
Yeah, considering that the part's are supposedly all USA made, you'd think that the build would be done here too.
I've never had any trouble with my Century builds, with the exception of a WASR-3, but I think that was due to the poor quality metal used by the Romanian manufacturer Cugir, not C.A.I., so I'd try the new rifle if it's not too expensive.
I hope that more US companies will start making 7.62x39 ammo, and steel cases at that, so that prices will go down and availability up!
